Fans knew Mason Disick as a young child who made regular appearances on the hit show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
But after celebrating his thirteenth birthday, his aunty, Kim Kardashian, shared a rare photo of Mason, leaving many gobsmacked by his appearance.
Read on to find out more.
Now, not a day goes by when the Kardashian/Jenner clan aren’t in the spotlight, and now that Kourtney and Travis are married, he’s in the limelight too…
They’re arguably been one of the most famous families for years now.
And with the new series of The Kardashians already out, the family has taken the spotlight to the next level…
But this time, their kids are a little older, and a lot more involved, which is exciting!
Kourtney Kardashian is known to have been straying away from the limelight in recent years.
Back in 2020 after KUWTK‘s Season 18, Kourtney revealed that she would be taking a step back from the show after constant fights with her sisters, Kim and Khloe.
She even responded to a fan telling her to “quit the damn show” on March 26 following the season premiere, she tweeted: “I did. Bye.”
Despite this, it seems she’s back in the latest season with Hulu, which began shooting late last year.
In this season of The Kardashians, fans get an inside look into Kim’s divorce from Kanye West and her newfound romance with Pete Davidson.
We see Khloe trying to patch things up with Tristan Thompson once again, while Kylie navigates her second pregnancy.
And let’s not forget, we get to see Kourtney’s relationship with Travis Barker blossom.
All eyes have been on Kourtney and Travis as they navigate their romance.
In the episodes so far, we have seen more details shared about the moment that Travis Barker asked Kourtney’s parents for permission to marry her.
According to People, in one episode, the show filmed Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner discussing the phone call in which Travis asked Kris for permission.
Speaking with Kim ahead of Kim’s Saturday Night Live debut, Kris said: “He asked for her hand in marriage, and I was like, literally, I want to cry now.”
Kris described the moment as “so sweet and so tender.”
She then revealed that Travis visited Kourtney’s father, Robert Kardashian’s grave to also ask for his permission.
“And then he said he went to your dad’s grave and asked your dad [for permission], and I just lost it,” Kris told Kim.
“It’s all happy, I just wish your dad was here to see it. I can hardly believe that it’s the first time that she’s getting married.”
One episode also revealed that the twelve-carat diamond ring, worth a whopping $1 million, that Travis proposed with had to be repaired…
Just days after Travis got down on one knee.
The episode showed Kris visiting Kourtney after the engagement where she asks her about the ring…
“Oh my gosh, can you believe you’re engaged!” she exclaimed in the scene, before asking: “Where’s the ring?”
Kourtney then revealed that she had accidentally stepped on her ring while in her closet and that she had “a nervous breakdown” after realizing she’d broken it.
“I’m covering it because it’s actually getting fixed,” Kourtney explained to her mom, with her sleeves covering her hands. “This is probably one of the worst things I’ve ever done in my whole life, by the way.”
“I was sitting on my floor folding sweatshirts and I took the ring off and I put it next to me on the floor thinking it’d be safe right next to me,” Kourtney shared.
“I had to get something up above in my closet, and when I stepped down I stepped on the ring.”
Totally surprised by her daughter’s answer, Kris responded: “You broke your engagement ring?”
“I was hysterically crying in my closet for, like, hours,” Kourtney added. “Then I called Travis, I was like: ‘I did something really, really bad’ and he handled it the best, but it really gave me a nervous breakdown.”
“This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever had in my life, how could I have done that?”
Fortunately, it seems that the broken engagement ring hasn’t stopped the pair with their plans for marriage as just months after their engagement…
Kourtney and Travis tied the knot… and it was the real deal!
But then Kourtney and Travis exchanged vows in a wedding chapel in Las Vegas in front of Elvis.
The pair shared pictures online, however, it was revealed that they weren’t actually married as there was no license.
However, Kourtney and Travis then exchanged for real!
And fans were thrilled about it…
“I’m happy for Kourtney. I remember how Kourtney wasn’t into weddings back then. Now… She finally found her man!” one person wrote on Twitter.
While another added: “Congratulations to Kourtney and Travis much love to both of you.”
The couple married in Santa Barbara, according to TMZ.
According to the outlet, Kourtney and Travis exchanged vows on the steps of the downtown courthouse.
The outlet reports that only a few guests, including bodyguards, were present for the vows.
Before they left driving a black convertible with a sign taped to the back that read: “Just married.”
Kourtney and Travis then had a big fat Italian wedding…
“They had to legally get married first ahead of their big Italian wedding,” a source told People.
But one thing fans aren’t thrilled about was Kourtney’s dress…
Some have labeled it the “tackiest wedding dress” they’ve ever seen.
The mom of three wore a short white bodycon dress with a veil in her hair.
While Travis dressed in an all-black tux.
Fans on social media have shared their thoughts on the dress, with one Facebook user writing: “All that money and she manages to look tacky, awful dress.”
Another added: “She has a lot of money but why didn’t she get a decent wedding dress? It looks like a costume for Halloween.”
“Can’t believe with all her money she chose to wear THAT.” a third wrote.
A fourth replied: “I am amazed she thinks that dress looks good.”
And that’s not the only thing she’s been slammed for.
Kourtney and Travis have come under fire for their constant PDA, and even their kids are speaking out.
Now the pair have been pretty handy since they first got together, which has clearly been pretty hard on her kids who she shares with her ex, Scott Disick
Mason, twelve, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 7 have had to adapt to this new normal, and it seems they don’t like their constant kissing.
However, Kourtney did bring up their “affectionate” relationship in episode 2, defending her’s and Travis’ PDA.
“Kissing and hugging is not a bad thing,” she said. “I’m actually grateful that my kids can see a loving, affectionate relationship because they haven’t seen that their whole lives.”
But clearly, her kids don’t agree, as they seem pretty grossed out by their antics, understandably.
This week’s episode of The Kardashians saw Penelope and Reign telling the couple to stop “French kissing” at the dinner table.
Kourtney can be seen playing table tennis with Penelope and Reign before Travis comes over and the pair immediately start making out.
In front of her kids.
Penelope quickly shouts: “Mom! No kissing!”
Travis, somewhat respectfully, apologizes, while Kourtney asks for “just one” more kiss.
“What about our certificates you gave us?” Kourtney asks her daughter seemingly referencing a handmade kissing pass, to which P yells: “No!”
They were called out again at the dinner table where Kourtney Travis and both their kids were eating together.
The pair start kissing again in front of all of their kids which seems to get too much for Reign, who says: “Ew guys! Can you guys not kiss in French again?” before adding: “Can you guys please not French kiss?”
This seems to end their family dinner, as the kids leave the table.
Now, coming back to Travis’ health scare…
It all started when Barker and Kourtney were spotted by the paparazzi at West Hills hospital on Tuesday morning for an apparent health issue…
According to reports in TMZ, a medical crew at West Hills felt Travis needed additional care after he went to the hospital to be seen about a medical issue he was having…
He was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Kourtney followed closely behind the ambulance, TMZ reports.
And that’s not all…
“God save me,” Travis tweeted during the ordeal…
And his daughter was clearly worried about his health too.
On the night of his hospitalization, Barker’s 16-year-old daughter, Alabama Barker, posted on her Instagram stories with her mom, Barker’s ex-wife Shanna Moakler…
She wrote: “Please send your prayers.”
She later posted a photo holding her father’s hand in the hospital.
She shared the pic on her TikTok page, with the caption: “Please say a prayer.”
The update left many fans even more concerned for his health…
One Twitter user wrote: “Hope Travis will be okay. Sending prayers; sounds serious.”
Another commented on the photo, writing: “If I was dying, being on my phone would be the last thing I would be doing. Travis is fine, he just drank too much of the Kardashian tea.”
She quickly deleted the TikTok, but later shared an update with fans.
Taking to Instagram once again, she posted another photo of her hand next to Barker’s, writing: “Thank you guys for all of the prayers and love, I appreciate you & love all of you.”
Travis’ stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya also wrote: “Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers sent this way. It is heard, felt, and appreciated. Xx.”
TMZ then reported that Barker was suffering from pancreatitis.
This is a condition where the pancreas becomes inflamed, causing a lot of pain in the abdomen. It can also cause vomiting and nausea.
TMZ claims that “multiple sources” close to Barker told them the condition was brought on by a recent colonoscopy.
A source has also told PEOPLE that Kourtney “won’t leave his side.”
“Kourtney was worried yesterday. They both were,” the source said at the time. “Travis was suffering from extreme stomach pain and could barely walk.”
Another insider told Us Weekly that the Kardashian family is “pretty concerned.” Adding that Travis has “been receiving an outpour of well-wishes, including from the Kardashians. He’s getting the best treatment and hopefully will be out of the hospital in the next 24 to 72 hours.”
“Kourtney is by his side and will remain by his side. His kids are very supportive as well. Alabama rushed to be by his side,” the source added.
“He and Kourtney have been asking for privacy as they battle through this together.”
But that’s not all… Kourtney has also slammed the media for misreporting her whereabouts…
Some media outlets sold some of Kourtney’s old pictures and even claimed the reality star was “out running errands” the day after her husband’s health scare.
“And to the paparazzi who sold pictures of me ‘out and about’ while my husband was fighting for his life… these were photos actually taken weeks ago (I can’t even remember the last time I wore that sweatsuit in the photos)… I didn’t forget about you…” she wrote on her Instagram stories.
The star said she was beside her husband the whole time, and the pictures “were taken weeks ago.”
“A new level of low, monetizing off of our nightmare. Really savagely uncool when I actually didn’t leave his side… shame on you,” she said.
Sources close to Kourtney informed TMZ, that the photos posted by the paparazzi were in fact “old.”
More recently, Kourtney has been announced as the new sustainability ambassador of the clothing brand, Boohoo.
As well as launching a new sustainably capsule with the brand, which reportedly made a massive £445.7 ($510.71) million, Kourtney is set to front a 4-part investigation into Boohoo’s journey, from designing the range to speaking to industry experts.
Kourtney’s first line of clothing, which is usually priced from £5 ($5.73) to £75 ($85.90), will be dropped by September 13.
It’s to feature forty-one styles, which are made from recycled polyester and recycled cotton.
After speaking about her decision to join the multi-million-dollar clothing brand, Kourtney admitted that she had a few concerns.
“When boohoo first approached me with this idea that was all about sustainability and style.
“I was concerned about the effects of the fast fashion industry on our planet,” she said.
“Boohoo responded with excitement and a desire to incorporate more sustainable practices into our line,” Kourtney said.
“It’s been an enlightening experience speaking directly with industry experts. I’m grateful for the opportunity to use my platform to drive conversations that lead to ongoing change and use my voice to share actionable tips with consumers on how we can play our own part.
“There’s still lots of work to be done and improvements to be made, but I truly believe that any progress we can make when it comes to sustainability is a step in the right direction and will open up the conversation for future advancements,” she added.
However, it seems like people still have concerns about the partnership between Kourtney and the fashion brand, accusing them of Greenwashing…
Which is essentially pulling marketing stunts to make people believe you’re trying to make a difference to save the planet, when in fact, there’s no change being made to reduce the risk.
People have taken to social media to share their thoughts…
One user wrote: “Positive change would be to stop overproducing poor quality clothes made by underpaid workers. Step one. Don’t need more awareness, the world is aware.”
Another added: “Would absolutely love to see you use the money you spend on these misleading marketing campaigns to actually 🌸 pay the people who make your clothes 🌸.”
Fashion designer, Aja Barber also jumped into the commotion and shared his thoughts on the matter…
“Yes, let’s keep it real.
“Have you tried making less stuff? Instead of paying rich people to virtue signal why not just pay super fair wages instead??? That’s something you can do and you don’t even have to give a rich person more money to do it,” he said.
Neither Kourtney nor Boohoo responded to the criticism they’ve received in the past few weeks, but it seems like the situation won’t be dying down anytime soon.
This week, Kardashian has made headlines once again, this time for posting a controversial snap of her daughter Penelope.
“Here’s just something about fall, back-to-school night, bedtimes, carpool mornings, tea and movies in bed, football games, pumpkins, my good morning song to wake everyone up, that makes me so happy!” she captioned the photo.
And fans just cannot get over the amount of makeup her daughter was wearing in the pic.
“How old is this girl for f**** sake.” one commenter wrote.
You can see the controversial image here.
Kourtney recently made an interesting revelation about Penelope on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.
And told host Amanda Hirsch that the ten-year-old sleeps with her almost every night!
“She’s slept with me every day since she was born and pretty much still does.
“Unless she has a friend sleep over or unless she leaves me to go sleep at Travis’ or Auntie Coco’s [Khloé] or Auntie Kiki’s [Kim],” Kourtney revealed.
“But besides that, we are so close,” she said.
Kourtney even called Penelope her “mini-me.”
And now, Kourtney’s revealed that she let her kids in her and Travis’ bedroom.
In a piece for Interview magazine, Kourtney is questioned by her younger sister, Khloé about her nightly routines with her new husband and their blended family.
When Khloé asked Kourtney how she keeps the kids out of her bedroom, the mom of 3 replied: “I don’t. We have an open-door policy in this house.”
“If it’s my kids, it’s usually silk pajamas or a vintage T-shirt and Travis’ boxers. Always with long sleeves and long pants,” she said. “And then if it’s just me and him, then it’s a little nothing or boxers and no shirt. I don’t know. I switch it up. I always got to keep it interesting.”
Kourtney also shared the unusual item she keeps in her “secret drawer” on her bedside table…
Her son’s “long braid.”
“I have Reign’s hair, because we didn’t cut his hair until he was five,” she said.
She then went on to admit she even takes a sniff of his hair.
“I have his long braid and I smell it often,” she said.
A completely baffled Khloé added: “Oh my god. Okay. That’s nice.”
Kourtney said: “I’ll show you when you come over later.”
To which Khloé responded: “Oh no, I’m fine with that. It’s like, oh my gosh. Rapunzel?”
But Kourtney’s son, Mason Disick, has recently become the center of attention after a rare photo of him was uploaded by Kim.
Kim shared a photo in to her Instagram Story of her and Mason back to back, with the caption: “The day has come where you’re taller than me now.
“I just love who you are and I’m so proud of you, Mason. Welcome to your teenage years. Happy birthday.”
In the image, Mason could be seen wearing a white T-shirt and grey joggers, sporting a long shaggy haircut and oversized sunglasses.
As for Kim, she was rocking casual attire, opting for one of her greys SKIMS robes complemented by her platinum blonde hair.
